When a Man Has Lost Everything. He Only has Revenge
Coming together to solve a series of murders in New York City are a DEA agent whose family was slain as part of a conspiracy and an assassin out to avenge her sister's death. The duo will be hunted by the police, the mob, and a ruthless corporation.
The Good: Some shots look cool.
The Bad: Lame and boring as fuck.
The Bottom Line: Why can't anyone make at least one decent video game movie? Just one...
I swear this is one of the worst films I have ever seen.
Seriously. The amount of flak this video game adaptation gets I was expecting Mortal Kombat: Annihilation or Silent Hill: Revelations. I prepared myself for complete and utter bollocks and what I got instead was a very expensive B-Movie which doesn't really feel much like Max Payne.
To say the acting is poor here would suggest that the persons on screen are actually doing any of that acting stuff to begin with. This is essentially a group of people, sleep-reading lines from a bland and cliched script.
The only actor here that managed to keep my attention was Olga kurylenko and she's barley even in the movie. Poor Marky Mark just isn't gruff, cynical or dickhead'ish enough to portray Max Payne.…
This has to be the worst video game Adaptation that i'v ever seen.
No plot? Okay. This movie sucks then. F
Maybe one day, one day, Hollywood will get the video game to movie transfer right. This adaptation of Max Payne makes me really wonder if that's ever gonna happen though. I never played the original game but knew enough of the premise going in - but surely the game was better than THIS? And by this, I mean perhaps the dullest action movie of the decade. It doesn't help that Mark Walhberg - usually reliable - spends the movie looking like a constipated owl, or that his (and every other) character is utterly one-dimensional. Nor does it help wasting cuteness like Mila Kunis on a role she could have stayed and home and done on the phone, making Amaury Nolasco's…
Mila kunis <3
Horribly generic and predictable. It literally brings nothing new to the table. And it's totally bland from start to finish because of it.
Nice to see Chris O'Donnell getting some work, though. I thought that guy was dead.
Had a couple of worthwhile scenes but overall its disappointing. I'm not a fan of slow motion at the best of times - its insulting to the viewer's intelligence - this one takes the cake in that regard.
The game Max Payne was ripe for a film adaptation, so something went severely wrong here. What should have been an action packed and hard boiled thriller is nothing more than a complete slog of a film with nearly no merits. I was so ready to give this another chance too after going back and playing the first game.
Mark Wahlberg is woefully miscast in the lead role as the titular Max Payne who is looking to avenge his family and co worker who was slaughtered by a mysterious organization ans is helped by an assassin whose sister was also murdered by these same people.
On paper this seems like a pretty straight-forward story and it loosely follows the plot…
I love the game...movie, it can pass...
With no hyperbole, I can say this is the worst movie I have ever seen in
the theatre. I have seen many, many films in the theatre. And this is the worst.
It's also amazing how a game whose only real selling point was excessive use of bullet time can feature no actual bullet time, just an amazingly shitty climatic moneyshot consisting of Marky Mark falling (not diving, falling) backwards while firing a shotgun. Just awful on every conceivable level.
Visually it's good. That's about it.
Algunas secuencias fusiladas del videojuego porque parece difícil entender que son medios completamente distintos.
Ni el videojuego me gusta mucho realmente.
Every film that has ever been nominated for a Razzie Award in any category.
I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
